Adam Lambert on Idol Stigma
Adam Lambert is popular with his fans but perhaps not so much with fellow celebrities.
The singer discussed in his struggle to fit into the pop world during his interview with Rolling Stone. Lambert explains that there is a stigma attached to being on Idol. “On red carpets at awards shows, other musicians are either really open to embracing me and being friendly and being associated with me, or they just don’t want to,” he said. “A lot of times its in my own head, but it feels like a political move to be friends with someone like me.”
Lambert explains that everyone he is friends with now, he knew before. “I still feel like I’m not welcome,” he said. “I went to the Grammys this year and felt really weird, like an outsider. Pop music feels like high school again – like, there’s the really cool kids, and I’m not one of those.”
Regardless of whom he can call his friends he still has millions of fans. His new album Trespassing drops tomorrow!
